BOB ISAACSON FANE SPEAKERS
HAS ANYONE OUT THERE HAD MUCH EXPERIENCE WITH FANE SPEAKERS FOR GUITAR AMPS, IN RELATION TO HOW THEY SOUND AS COMPARED TO CELESTION, EV,  
EMINENCE, OR OTHER POPULAR BRANDS?

The Fane V-30 type speaker is a lot cheaper then the Celestion but doesn't have the snap a real Vintage 30 does.  
It's still a very good sounding speaker but a little bit darker sounding too.  
No experience with the AlNiCo speaker.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

I spoke to one of the guys who build the re-issue Hiwatts. They put the Alnico 10's in one of their smaller Booker combos and he said it sounded better than one running with the Vox/Celestion blues.  
 
I've heard neither so I can't really comment. But check these out:

(check out the gorgeous cabinets on the Booker amps)

(follow the links to guitar and sound samples for a comparison of Celestion speakers played by Neville Marten from Guitarist magazine)  
 
Cheers

Bruce,Paul:  
Thanks for the information. Indeed, those Booker cabinets look great, but probably beyond my penny-pinching budget. The only supplier that I've seen so far for Fane is Mojo. I was impressed with the fact that they are available in three different impedances without having to special order them.  
 
Thanks again  
 
Bob
